Info about Gateway Server

Hi,

Q1) What is a gateway server.

Q2) In a dataflow diagram I see that two applications (on Server A) pass data to a server XYZ. In the document one application lists the Server XYZ as a gateway server, but the other doesn't talk about it. Both are similar applications i.e. applications in a suite. why would they not be calling it the same.

Thanks

A gateway server routes information to and from the internet. It's not directly involved in processing the traffic that goes through it per se, as much as just deciding where it should go. They probably just didn't label it twice since, unless it's broken, the gateway doesn't need much attention paid to it.
